Belzona® Resin Chocks For Dredger Boiler

 
 

Industry:

Marine (MRNE)

 
 

Application:

Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)

 
 

Customer Location:

Port Operator, Middlesbrough, UK

 
 

Application Date:

April 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Boiler inside engine room of dredger.

 
 

Problem:

A new boiler required chocking into place. A secure, vibration free location was essential to its efficient operation.  

 
 

Products:

Belzona 7111 (Marine Grade)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-12. The boiler was set into place using jacking bolts, and dams were built around each of the individual bolts. Belzona 7111 was then poured into the prepared areas using a small section of steel as a runway due to the difficult access. The thickness of the pour was just over 2 inches, so a solidifier reduction was used.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona 7111 resin chocks were quickly and effectively installed and will ensure a secure, vibration free location for the boiler.
